Fitness problems continue to plague Indian pacer Mohammad Shami. He failed in the latest fitness test as well, thereby, losing his chance for the upcoming Asia Cup and is also doubtful for the ICC World Twenty20 tournament.
Seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been named as replacement for Shami by the selection committe.
“The BCCI medical team confirms that Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of Asia Cup, 2016. The decision has been taken to give him more time to recover from the Grade II injury to his left hamstring,” BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur said in a statement.
